The way we were

When was the first time I heard this song?
Maybe 13 or 14 years old.
It was not Barbara Streisand version.

I heard Leslie sang it in his 1993 farewell concert.
That was so so long ago. 12 years at least...
Fall in love with this song,
but his version is by far the best.

Like the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - Would we? Could we?
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it is the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were
